Nectar Poems


75 Minute Cassette

This tape contains something a little different: versifications of the translations of Sanskrit slokas, and even a few original poems. We start off with Srila Prabhupada’s obeisances mantra, then move on to an astaka (eight-verse poem) about Srila Prabhupada, an astaka about Lord Caitanya, and then several astakas about Lord Krsna and Srimati Radharani. The tape also includes the Sri Siksastaka (Eight Verses of Instruction on the Holy Name, by Lord Caitanya) and lots of other verses about Krsna’s holy name, pastimes, qualities, form, and devotees. Sample (from the Krsna-karnamrta): “Sweet, sweet is my dear Lord’s form,/ Sweeter still His face, so fair,/ But His honey-scented gentle smile/ Is sweet beyond compare.”
